RECOMMENDATION(S):

APPROVE and AUTHORIZE the Health Services Director, or designee, to execute on behalf of the County Contract #74–304-12 with Fred Finch Youth Center, a non-profit corporation, in an amount not to exceed $1,503,519, to provide mental health services to County youth under the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) Community Services and Supports Program for the period from July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021, which includes a six-month automatic extension through December 31, 2021, in an amount no to exceed $751,759.

FISCAL IMPACT:

This contract will result in budgeted expenditures of $1,503,519 and will be funded by 39% Federal Medi-Cal ($586,372) and 61% Mental Health Services Act ($917,147) revenues. (No rate increase)


BACKGROUND:

This Novation Contract meets the social needs of County’s population by providing implementation of MHSA Community Services and Supports Program, including providing community-based services, personal services coordination, medication support, crisis intervention, and other mental health services to eligible youth clients in Contra Costa County. Expected program outcomes include an increase in positive social and emotional development as measured by the Child and Adolescent Functional Assessment Scale (CAFAS).

The County has utilized the recommended contractor for over 12 years for the aforementioned services. Most recently on July 9, 2019, the Board of Supervisors approved Novation Contract #74–304-10 (as amended by Amendment Agreement #74-304-11) with Fred Finch Youth Center, to implement the MHSA Community Services and Supports Program for the period from July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020.

Approval of Novation Contract #74-304-12 will replace the automatic extension under the prior contract and allow the contractor to continue providing services through June 30, 2021.

CONSEQUENCE OF NEGATIVE ACTION:

If this contract is not approved, effective implementation of the MHSA Transitional-aged youth services and support programs will be delayed leading to reduced levels of services for County’s mental health clients.

CHILDREN'S IMPACT STATEMENT:

The recommendation supports one or more of the following children's outcomes: (1) Children Ready for and Succeeding in School and (4) Families that are Safe, Stable and Nurturing.
